EDITOR'S OPINION

Scott easily has my vote. It's much more distinctive and feels more "real" than Brian.

They're both perfect. Scott Menville doing his usual great voice, and Brian doing his Takato voice that sounds kind of similar. Scott edges out, though.

I'm really undecided between the two, honestly I think they portrayed Lloyd so well.

Menville's performance feels genuinely, and his voice really fits Lloyd's character. On the flip side, Beacock's performances in both DotNW and RM feel forced and I feel his voice doesn't mesh well with the character. Scott Menville all the way. Hope he comes back if they remake Symphonia.

I also prefer Scott M., maybe they should redub Dawn of The New World.
Besides, Brian B. is not my vote. What do you think?

Gonna go with Scott Menville. His acting's great, and he fit the character to a tea. It's a darn shame he didn't reprise. Beacock isn't terrible, though. He probably sounds closer to the Japanese VA, but Menville was still the more enjoyable performance.

@ConfusedPhantom Man, I really hope they either keep/bring back Scott Menville for the Tales of Symphonia HD version. Just going back to Beacock's performance kinda made me realize how...uninteresting he is for the character. Though then again, it would be cheaper to just use the old voice recordings, so...I guess that's fine. Though, they'll have to get Menville back from the new artes and maybe cutscenes.

I dunno, I kinda like both for different reasons. Scott does a great job of making Lloyd exuberant and youthful, while Brian effectively makes Lloyd sound experienced and even a bit shadowy. Both are very good in the role, although Scott definitely gets my vote.

Lloyd grew up so a change in voice was a way of showing that. Plus Lloyd sounded more cool minded and grown up more.

I agree with the comment before me. Scott all the way man. I still don't get why they changed his voice. I was PO'd when I noticed it. If ToS II was focused on Lloyd I wouldn't have played it. Emil/Ratatosk and Marta made the game for me.

Beacock makes my soul weep... Scott feels much more natural, his acting's better, and Beacock's performance was incredibly forced. What an awful change!
